SAVE THE DATE: 1 SEPTEMBER IS WORLD CLL DAY!
Every 1 September, the global CLL community unites to raise awareness about chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and give those affected by a diagnosis of CLL a much needed voice. On World CLL Day we come together to improve understanding of the vulnerability of CLL patients and the challenges involved in living with CLL.
Under the hashtags #WCLLD23 #WithTeamCLL and #MentalHealth we focus on the mental health challenges of those living with CLL. Due to a high degree of uncertainty given the challenging nature of the disease, mental health issues and the impact of living with a chronic condition such as CLL are very real. We want to spot a light on the challenges that CLL patients encounter during the full pathway of their disease – these are particularly high during Active Monitoring (“Watch & Wait”). Living with the immune challenges of CLL can also add emotional and psychological distress.
Alongside appropriate care, having access to reliable resources and connecting with others can help patients live better with this chronic, incurable cancer. On this #WCLLD23 we make a stand for not leaving patients alone with mental health issues – no one should have to walk alone!
CLL patients need support, information and connection.
Join us and help spread the message in the lead-up to World CLL Day 2023 and on 1 September 2023!
On the dedicated Word CLL Day website you can find downloadable materials, online resources as well as information on how you can get involved and what you can do in the lead-up to #WCLLD23.
A campaign toolkit has been developed specifically for WCLLD23. The 2023 campaign materials are freely available and shall help you develop your own activities and actions around World CLL Day on 1 September 2023. We have prepared a set of visuals that you can share on your social media channels and a selection of editable Canva assets for you to adapt for your own use.
Please spread the word and let other stakeholders and your clinical community know about World CLL Day and ask them for their active participation by building WCLLD into their communication plans!
World CLL Day is a great way of kicking off Blood Cancer Awareness Month for the CLL community. It will help build momentum for the CLL community on World Leukemia Day on 4 September and World Lymphoma Awareness Day on 15 September.
THANK YOU FOR JOINING WORLD CLL DAY 2023 AND HELPING SPREAD THE MESSAGE OF AWARENESS!
